Amari Ebbin Attending Trial For Kent County CC

March 1, 2019

Former Warwick Workmen’s Club player Amari Ebbin is attending a professional trial for Kent County Cricket Club in England.

This is the result of many years of hard work on the cricket pitch in England and Bermuda. This work began in earnest when Amari played his first full season of senior cricket at Warwick Workmen’s Club in 2016 averaging 30 runs.

During the 2016 season Amari was chosen as a First Division player of the week after a knock of 92 not out. One of Bermuda’s most decorated senior player noted it was one of the best knocks he had seen by a 17 year old as he gave no chances.

In 2016 Amari attended Sedbergh School in Cumbria in the United Kingdom, where he was recruited by Martin Speight the Head Cricket Coach and former County player. Amari spent 2 years at Sedbergh training in their top ranked elite Cricket Academy, which produces professional players every year including the likes of Harry Brook who recently captained England’s U19 team whom Amari had the opportunity to train and play with during his stay at Sedbergh.

In 2018, Amari was selected as a starter for the 1st XI, cementing his place as an opening batsman. This was a successful season as he was the 3rd highest scorer with several over 400 run on all competition, held the most catches as an outfielder and played key innings throughout the year, most memorable was the Bows Cup and a match against the Lancashire County Academy.

In 2017 Amari decided to remain in England for the summer and joined North Middlesex Cricket Club in which he was slotted into the 3rd team of the Premier league, a few levels from County, and enjoyed success with both the bat and wicketkeeping gloves.

In 2018, he was a trump card for the 3rd teams run at the league Cup which he played key innings, helping North Middlesex to win two title chasing games with key stumpings and a well-made 40, that lifted the team to 200 after being 80 for 5.

During the last two summers Amari trained with a professional coach Auckland second team player James Poslow, several England under 19 players and Middlesex County players where he gained a lot of match experience and improved his batting and wicket keeping skills.
